Slowly getting better at this sim.
had three successful Case 1 recoveries in a row last session, including one where I was essentially flying with instrument failure because the mission maker didn't include TACAN for the carrier (meaning I didn't know distance or heading), and I neglected to set my altimeter before takeoff (meaning my altimeter was useless for landing). Had to eyeball everything..still landed, was rough (a 1 wire) but totally successful!

For those of us who are VR players, Matt Wagner at ED has some excellent news!

Quote:
Earlier we mentioned that we have been working on DCS VR optimization. I have good news today! After much investigation and work, we traced the issue back to the terrain engine. We have since adjusted the terrain engine, and this has resulted in a 50% increase in VR performance! We will continue to test and optimize this further, but we hope to have this great improvement to you soon.

Man, this game is a black hole...
Purchased a new joystick (CH Fighterstick, probably the best "budget" option for a real stick), and am now looking at getting PointCTRL or a new Throttle...

And Soooo much to learn, and then to learn to employ properly. I love it! Getting decent at Air Ground, and light Air to Air, now learning beyond visual range still and countermeasures / RWR... Coming from Elite Dangerous, this game is like diving into the ocean.

Ruh oh...

Quote:
A Russian national is currently being held in Weber County, Utah, after being arrested and charged with “conspiring against the United States, smuggling and violating the Arms Export Control Act”. All over what he claims are some manuals he was using to make a flight sim.

As the Standard-Examiner reports, from 2011-2015, Oleg Mikhaylovich Tishchenko was active on eBay purchasing manuals for actual USAF fighter jets. The problem was that, as a Russian, he was barred from purchasing the documents directly due to international restrictions, and so he employed the help of flight sim fans based in the US to bid on his behalf and then ship the manuals to him in Russia.

Tishchenko—who claimed he was an employee of Eagle Dynamics, developers of the DCS series, and that the manuals were to help with development of the ultra-realistic games—soon became the subject of an investigation by Homeland Security and the Air Force, and was actually charged back in 2016. He was only recently arrested this year when he travelled to Georgia, a country with an extradition agreement with the US.

Pretty serious stuff. Anyone aiding him should be held accountable too, as he was charged in 2016 and was trying to get around it by having people in the US help him. Some of this stuff, even on older jets that have been upgraded, have technology and information that can affect our new gen aircraft like the F-22 and F-35.

Anyone that helped him that resides in the US is a ****ing moron.

Saw that too.
The stupid thing is...that manual is available easily on the net. No reason for him to turn to ebay. (unless he just wanted a hard copy?)

Just...a lot of idiocy all around on it. On his part for trying to aquire them. On the guy in Texas's part for sending it...

And yea, he was an employee of Eagle Dynamics, but he did this on his own according to the official statement from them. ED stick to public sources and don't want to hurt their relationships with the companies that manufacture the hardware they are imitating.

So picked up the A-10C, Persian Gulf and Navada during the sale.

So much more to learn now!

If you're intending to get into the campaigns for the hog, make sure to check out some videos about reading 9- lines and entering grid co-ordinates into the CDU, or you're going have a rough time with JTAC. Unless they've made changes it's not really covered fully in the manual.

In a quick summary, time already served + slap on the wrist. He's already back in Moscow working for ED again.

Yep. Although it did amount to a little over a year in jail in Georgia (Country) and the United States.
Considering it's a document freely available on the net...(Still considered controlled by the USA, but apparently not by some of our allies who we sell the F-16 too)


So now able to cold start the A-10, both similar and completely different than the F-18. Also amazing how roomy that cockpit is after the Hornet.
Currently learning how to work with waypoints and ILS landings in the A-10.

For the F-18, feel like I have a pretty good handle on it all around now. Flight, navigation, employment in both AA and AG roles. (and mixed, proper hotas helps there), carrier operations still need improvement, but I rarely bolter anymore. Main area that needs improvement is AA refueling at this point. (It's just not that easy, hoping the new throttle helps a little with speed management).

Having a group of people to fly with is awesome too. Nothing beats that moment when a friendly copter is on the radio taking AAA and needing assistance, and blazing in at 500knots taking out the AAA with a Maverick. "The Calvary has arrived" type moments.

Or flying close formation at low level using terrain masking to try to locate an enemy EWR site, taking out the occasional MIG that spots you from 50,000ft to defend you wingmen, then popping up 30 miles from the site to launch some JDAM's to hit the radar, while enemy fighters try to box you in. (I didn't escape, flight lead took a SAM, multiple sam sights in front, fighters behind. I took out three MIGs before being shot down, clearing a path for my wingman to escape).

It's exhilarating, partly because of the scenarios, and partly because of the intricacy of the avionics and complexity of proper employment. When it all comes together it's amazing.

So got a Thrustmaster Warthog throttle to pair with my CH Fighterstick.
Still have many key bindings to work out, but getting there. Really nice to not have to have modifier keys for everything. The extra throw of the throttle is great for flying as well, was a little nerveous going in for my first carrier landing, but had the best groove time I think I've ever had, and snagged the two wire.

Now I have to re-build my muscle memory, going to take some time for sure.

The F-16 Trailer is awesome. Favorite plane by far.

The Targeting pod for the F-18 is now in open beta, total game changer for the hornet. Ability to self laze and use GPS guided munitions in the field... ohh yeaa.
